Verified Patient Reviews
Always attentive and thorough. I recently had my insurance canceled and she was great about recommending what kind of blood test I should do to not run up a huge tab since I'm paying out of my pocket right now. I appreciated that she wasn't trying to be excessive or unnecessary with running tests. She knows my medical history is pretty clean and this was just an annual exam.
Dr. Yih is exactly who I was looking for in a doctor; perfect blend of efficiency and compassion. Friendly, efficient receptionists. Excellent nurse and tech person. I could not ask for a better doctor's office visit.
Dr. Yih is the absolute best - she is prompt, very thorough, and an absolute joy to meet with. I would recommend her to any / all women who are looking for a fantastic internist.
She is very thorough and pleasat. She took her time and addressed all my questions and concers
Overall a good experience, just felt a little rushed with the doctor. She works and speaks very fast. Almost feel bad to ask one too many questions because she seemed like she needed to be elsewhere.
She talks fast but is very caring and smart. She referred me to specialists who changed my life. NYU is a huge system, but I feel that Peggy knows me.
SHE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!
Had a wonderful experience. Peggy Yih was professional, personable, funny and kind. My visit was quick and thorough and I didn't feel rushed. Overall wonderful and would totally recommend.
There was a little confusion about my appointment because it was made that same day, but once they figured it out, they got me in right away. Even though she talks very fast, Dr Yih is very calming and shows concern. I appreciated that she called me as soon as she had my results.
Dr. Yih's office is very well run, with no wait times either to see her or for an EKG or for other procedures. She is very easy to talk to and I feel that I'm in excellent hands. I'm very pleased that I was referred to her.
Outstanding in understanding and communicating, I was impressed.
She seemed very professional yet caring. I needed a manager for my health and she seems to be the one
Dr. Yih made me feel very comfortable as this was my first visit and she went thru all my information with me and if I missed anything she would ask me . I just recommended her to my two sisters.
Visits always run on time. If I have to wait at all, it is <5 minutes. I also appreciate that she has office hours before 9 am. We start the exam in her office where we can chat about the past year (since I see her at my annual visit). She documents very efficiently in the EHR. I am in and out of the exam room on time AND I have the time to ask all my questions. I sometimes communicate with her via MyChart (patient portal) and either she/her nurse get back to me promptly. I like I can do the following online: schedule appointments, update my demographic information, pay my bill, view my test results, and communicate with the care team. My one "complaint" is that she books up very quickly often 3+ months in advance for an my annual physical.
Thorough, pleasant, efficient.
Very informative and caring. She is a very good doctor.
Dr Yih is fantastic! Listens to all my concerns and is highly responsive! Go see this Doc!!
I had been putting off going to the doctor since moving to the city a couple years ago, fearing that the experience would involve the usual NYC crowds and wait. Everyone in the office was very efficient but very nice and welcoming.
Dr Yih has a warm personality and I always feel like she listens and takes all my health concerns into account. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family looking for a general practicioner. Like most NYC doctors, she does talk a little fast though, so don't be afraid to ask her to repeat something if you didn't catch it the first time!
I found Dr. Yih very professional, and would defiantly recommend her to a friend.
Was very pleased with her. She answered all my questions and provided me with excellent information. She set up a plan of care based on my needs and my family history. Also her assistant was very pleasant.
Dr. Yih was very thorough and quick, but did not make me feel too rushed. She gave good advice on some basic medical problems and set me up with referrals for other doctors in the practice. The practice itself seems to be run well and I was very comfortable as a first time patient.
Professional. Thorough. Knowledgable. Engaged. And affiliated with the excellent teaching institution, NYU Langone. Dr. Yih is simply superb.
Just comparison to my previous doctor, she explained and answered to my questions with more details and with clear words.
She was very nice and straightforward. Took the time to call me back two days later and gave me my results over the phone and called in the prescription...no need to go into the office for results like most doctor. I really liked her. I love this place too...quick check in process.
Dr. Yih is wonderful - great bedside manner and very connected to the patient - excellent body language and eye contact. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Yih
Dr. Yih has always been engaged, responsive, and compassionate during my visits over the past five plus years. Her ability to process information and diagnostic skills are impressive all the while maintaining a positive, encouraging affect. As a retired medical professional, I am grateful to be her patient and would recommend her to anyone in need of her assessment and help.
Doctor's visit was disappointing. She said she would follow up with my results, but never called. Apparently, there was something not quite right with my blood work, and it was my ob/gyn (who had access to my medical charts) who was able to rectify the situation... several months later. She's also super difficult to get an appointment with, so if you suddenly get sick, forget it. Otherwise, the front staff are very nice and professional.
Everything was fantastic. She answered all my questions and advised me accordingly.
she was wonderful and pleasant

She was great! Very personable and listened to everything I had to say.
It seems that the Tisch center for women really understands what at least I'm looking for. I don't want to wait and that means a lot to me. I don't want a bunch of unnecessary tests. Dr Yih didn't waste any time and she got the job done. What a difference from the usual process in a doctor's office.
Dr. Yih is great! Go see her for yor next annual physical or check-up!
Peggy is absolutely SPECTACULAR!!!
Dr. Yih is a fast talker but she is to-the-point and actually sat down with me to review my medical history before a routine physical. I'm used to being shunted around doctor's offices like a pinball. Not so here. It feels like a really positive place for women to go.
Great! Very speedy. Liked her a lot.
Friendly, professional, to-the-point triage, very open to questions. Office was lovely, staff was great. Would def recommend.
Dr Yih and her staff are absolutely wonderful! clean modern office, the 3 receptionist at the front desk were extremely friendly. Dr Yih was knowledgeable and courteous . I couldn't believe it when she called back with lab results the next day.
I liked my visit because it was fast and straight to the point, although it was so fast that I forgot to ask some other concerns...
Such a kind and gracious doctor, who really listens.
Approachable. Down to earth.
Friendly, professional, and thorough
Totally amazing Doctor!! So warm and sweet and extremely thorough!
Both my son and I have her as our primary care physician. We both love her because she is warm, gracious, and caring. She does not make me feel rushed. She makes me comfortable enough to not hold back any questions I have. Her explanations are clear. With gentle firmness, she tells me what I should do or not do to keep my condition from getting worse. God bless you, Dr. Yih.
Doctor Peggy is very nice. She took the time to listen to all of my questions and concerns. She will be my pcp from now on.
My visit was very quick and efficient. I didn't feel like I was rushed neither did I feel like I was waiting too long. The receptionist was also really helpful with other appointment bookings. This was my first visit so I had a lot of questions but I didn't feel too embarrassed asking.
Dr Yih has a wonderful bedside manner, easy to talk to, respectful, bright, focused. I feel that I am in good hands with Dr. Yih as my new internist.
Dr. Yih is really great. She's smart, full of knowledge and no-nonsense but totally puts you at ease. She's really quick so sometimes you have to squeeze in your questions but she answers everything thoroughly. She's one of the best doctors I've ever had.
Knowledgeable Caring and committed to wellness
I was so touched by her compassion for me. She was very thorough and professional. I am so happy I found her.
She was very informative and doesn't wast any time.
She is very competent and quick!
Being that I was almost 10 minutes late, she saw me almost immediately. A mile a minute, she was able to do a thorough annual checkup and have my blood work done all under 20 minutes. I mean I wasn't even done filling out my paperwork and the appointment was done! Awesome.
Best internist I've had. Professional, fast but no rushing and very nice. All around perfect.
She is absolutely fantastic, proactive, and taking the time to explain in detail what needs to be done. Also, she calls right away when you place a call on her. Caring, funny and kind. In summary, she is an amazing doctor!
Appointments feel kind of rushed - recommend coming with a list of things you want to talk about.
She was professional, quick, thorough, and very personable.
I had a great experience with Dr. Yih. I didn't feel rushed, and she listed to my needs and concerns. I would definitely go back and hope to continue my relationship with her and the rest of the medical staff in the practice.
